Uninvited players have taken over the training session of the Nigeria U17 team who have started training ahead of their upcoming task of qualifying for the African Youth Championship.
Coach of the team Manu Garba invited 40 players, carefully selected from a scouting mission by the coach and other members of his technical crew upon their appointment.
The aim of the coach was to curb the usual tedious process of having too many players turn up for screening when they resume training but his intention has suffered a set back.
Manu Garba and the other technical crew members spent over five hours in yesterday’s training session witnessed by Owngoalnigeria.com assessing players who turned up at the goal project pitch in Abuja for assessment.
Players picked from the over 400 players who were there yesterday were later grouped alongside the ones who were invited by the technical crew, and they had their own session after the uninvited players have been prune down to a sizeable amount.
